Tonto Trails Teams with Mountain Khakis and Overland Journal for Adventure Giveaway

Durango, Colo. (August 18, 2014) - Tonto Trails, the first expedition vehicle rental company in the U.S., teamed with adventure clothing company, Mountain Khakis, and Overland Journal to offer a Summer 2014 Sweepstakes Grand Prize Adventure Trip.

In what was called the “Tonto Trails Alpine Expedition Sweepstakes” a grand prize winner won a 6-day/5-night overland adventure package in a Tonto Trails customized Jeep JK Wrangler on the epic Colorado Alpine Loop. The winners were on a self-driving adventure through Colorado’s most scenic high-country roads connecting Telluride, Silverton, Lake City and Ouray. The full prize package had additional prizes from 19 different sponsors, including Keen, Osprey, Suunto, Big Agnes and Arc'teryx for an approximate retail value of $18,319.

“Partnering with Mountain Khakis and Overland Journal was a no brainer for us,” said Julie Hartley, owner of Tonto Trails. “They represent the outfitting and journalistic side of the overlanding industry, and we are excited to share the actual overland experience with the lucky winners.”

The 2014 Sweepstakes winners are Brie Chesley and Kristopher Hood of Fort Collins, Colorado. They were selected at random from almost 14,000 entries for the online sweepstakes. Brie, Kris and their 2 year old daughter took their trip in July to take advantage of the beautiful high country wildflowers and flowing glacier rivers. “This truly is one of our dream adventures and something we have talked about doing since we met,” said Brie. “Being able to use one of these fully equipped vehicles from Tonto Trails was the adventure of a lifetime for us. We can’t wait to do it with our extended family in the future!”
